    The boat is unique and pretty well known around here. In fact, I only spoke to the guy last week!

    I wonder just what his plans are? I can't see the businesses merging or coming under a common banner, so I guess they'll still be run separately. Which then begs the question what will he do...

    I've not known most of the acts for several years!

    My daughter (under 30) complains that night clubs are for the 'youngsters!'

    Sadly, age catches up with all of us at some point.

    I've got a lot of time for Dog's trust, but last time I was there I was particularly unimpressed with how it was being run. P*ss ups and brewery spring to mind.
